Son of Robert F. Kennedy charged over clash with nurses

New York (CNN) – Robert F. Kennedy's son, Douglas, faces misdemeanor charges over an incident at a New York hospital last month in which he knocked down a nurse while holding his newborn son, attorneys for both sides say.

He was arraigned Thursday on harassment charges, both attorneys said.

    Actually, the DOCTOR in this case should be fired!!! The hospital is responsible for ALL patients and they would be blamed if the baby was kidnapped. The ONLY time a newborn baby is allowed to go outside is when they are going home........ PERIOD!!

    Ted Kennedy got away with murder so this is nothing new for this family.

    If he wasn't the son of a Kennedy this wouldn't make news and he wouldn't of been charged with anything what did the nurse do to get knocked down and was it by accident

    What an arrogant obnoxious 1% creep. That nurse was lucky that he didn't have a golf club. If you are a Kennedy, you can commit murder without fear of punishment; because the Judges on the Court of Appeals in Boston owes favors to your family. Some people are above the law.

    I'm beginning to suspect the children of the rich and famous often turn out badly. Maybe those of us who had the jobs in the fast-food places learned something on our way up...

    Uncle Teddy clashed with a lot of nurses to, but it was never reported by the liberally biased media that is owned by the democrat liberal party. I can remember watching that obnoxious drunk demean and degrade women all over the District of Columbia while the mainstream media was builidnig him up as this outstanding moral character. Kinda like they do now with Obozo.

    Who does Douglas Kennedy think he is? Just because of his name he can get away with anything!! Look at the Kennedy Family background, Joe Kennedy was a scammer, the brothers are adulterers and the children have no morals!!

  12. Santorum ought to run as Pontiff-in-chief

    How dare he! There should be a law that protects nurses from work abuse.

    Santorum will get the money to back up his honesty once he wins the gop nomination. Don't fall for the "he can't beat Obama cause he doesn't have enough money". He's honest and conservative with the best ideas to take back my freedoms and to let me grow, better than any of the others especially Romney. Don't let Romney's money steal your vote and vote for values and freedom

    Santorum will get the money to back up his honesty once he wins the gop nomination. Don't fall for the "he can't beat Obama cause he doesn't have enough money". He's honest and conservative and I believe he's presenting the best ideas to take back my freedoms and to let me grow, better than any of the others especially Romney. Don't let Romney's money steal your vote and vote for values and freedom. Everyone I talk to and myself have no doubt that he can take down Obama by simply speaking the TRUTH! Americans are tired of the abuse
